Jose Canseco cleared in sexual assault investigation

Jose Canseco will not be charged in connection with a Metro Police investigation into allegations of sexual assault against the former Major League Baseball star.

In late May , Canseco was identified as a suspect in a sexual assault case.

Canseco, a Las Vegas resident, took to social media and vehemently denied the allegations.

Metro Police officer Jose Hernandez said Canseco came in for a polygraph test this week, and the investigation has been concluded. No charges will be sought.

“Based on the investigation and a review of the case itself, the case has been closed,” Hernandez said.

Early Friday, the former all-star and 1988 American League Most Valuable Player, appeared to offer his story for money on Twitter.

“Polygraph results up for sale with the true detailed story of what happened that night,” was posted from the verified @JoseCanseco Twitter feed.

Canseco played in the majors from 1985 until 2001.
